lee. the first agency in northern california to add the weapons to its tactical defense. the officers say the nunchakus will help them useless force when restraining suspects. >> we can use them for joint manipulation, wrist control, compliance, that type of thing. >> now, the officers are not required to carry the nunchakus. they say it's just another option for them to control a suspect without injuring someone in the process. police must pass a 16-hour training program. okay. let's turn it over to the man of the hour, chief meteorologist jeff ranieri with a lot of green on his magic board there. >> we would like to see a whole lot more of this storm system but it's not happening right now because it's light showers ahead of the main cold front. we do think it's going to ramp up in intensity as we head trut the next 12 hours. we will tell you exactly when here in just a few minutes but i do want to get your to the areas that are getting some rainfall. i know it's not extremely heavy but a lot of you also have been excited about the fact of just
getting a few rain drops, especially down here in san jose. you continually get missed by any kind of storm system we've had over the past six to eight months. so even a little bit of light rain is good news. you can see some of this rain down towards downtown, fremont, also mountain view. we're seeing the same thing as we zoom in closer from san mateo, palo alto, wood side. much needed relief for fire danger. for the east bay, it's been pretty spotty in nature. you can see it's dry across oakland over towards san francisco. just a few spotty showers right now. the one spot back in the east bay that has had some shower activity is livermore. you can see it's pretty consistent right now even back towards pleasanton on the 580 and 680 corridor. doing any traveling over the next three to six hours, do expect slick spots on the roadways. so let's take you to that morning forecast. the you're leaving any time between 5:00 and 9:00 in the morning do expect the possibility of rainfall throughout the entire bay area. we will also start off cool with 53 in the north bay, san
francisco, 61 and down towards the south bay, 68. let's get a more detailed look at the stop system that is finally bringing us at least a few rain drops in. the main reason we will not see heavy rain or also gusty winds is this center of low pressure that has a lot of that heaviest rainfall wrapped around it heading off to the north into canada. we'll get the middle to bottom edge of this cold front moving across. once that happens, once the cold front provides the needed uplift in the atmosphere, that's when we will see our chances of rainfall increase. let's look at the forecast model. pin pointing this pretty exact when we do expect the heaviest rainfall. 5:30 in the morning. any time between 5:30 and 9:00 in the morning is when that rainfall will likely pick up in intensity. total, .5 to quarter of an inch, likely some of the highest totals from santa rosa to napa and coastline as well. by the afternoon hours likely a few scattered showers are left for us and clearing by about
4:00 and 5:00 on wednesday. so let's go and take you to that microclimate forecast as we head through wednesday. san francisco at 60s all across the board. no matter which microclimate you're in, financial district, 67. 70 in palo alto. south bay, low to mid 70s. chance of rain in the morning. sun building by the afternoon. north bay, oath bay, tri-valley enjoy the temperatures across danville, pleasanton and livermore. no chance of 80s tomorrow. you will be in the 70s. up in wine country, 72 expected in napa. there are some important weekend changes i do want to go over. we will still have sunny skies on halloween. great news for any plans. but a fast-moving system will drop down on sunday and bring us another chance of showers. good news there and also some cooler temperatures. so as we round things out in the weekend forecast, the difference between saturday and sunday is about a ten degree drop. we'll see that in the south bay, east bay, and also for the tri-valley. just what we like to see this
